Backups are a business essential. They give us the reassurance that, if one day something goes badly wrong, we’ll have our critical business information backed up and ready to retrieve. But they take a lot of time and resource. That’s partly because data size and composition of varying formats keeps increasing; plus, in spite of deduplication, a lot of legacy data remains, especially on old media where it’s not easily recoverable.
As an IT Services and Cloud Consultancy for medium to large enterprises in all sectors, we are aware that moving to cloud isn’t a simple choice, especially in the public sector and NHS which have their own issues.
For most organisations the question is no longer whether to adopt cloud but when and what services to move, while early adopters should be reviewing their portfolio to make sure they are getting best value. For both groups, these are the key trends to look out for.
